Natural Born Citizen Seeks Certification
February 8, 2011 Oklahoma City, OK – A Response to Show A Cause Order in the US Court of Appeals 10th Circuit has been released to the public today as the paperwork makes its way to the 10th Circuit Court Clerk for filing. The legal definition of the Constitutional idiom “natural born Citizen” is the focus of the suit.
The Appellant, an Oklahoma resident, has spent the last 2 ½ years requesting the Federal Government or the Courts to “certify” him as a natural born Citizen. He argues that if he, born of two American citizen parents on US soil, can not be determined to be natural born Citizen, then no one can be certified as such and therefore no one is eligible to run for the office of US President or Vice-President. Furthermore, he found that the US Citizenship and Immigration Services Administration in the publication, “The Citizen’s Almanac” changed the wording for President/VP eligibility as a “native-born citizen” requirement. He contends that this usurpation of authority to “abridge, enlarge, and/or modify the Constitutional “idiom” of natural born Citizen (US Constitution Clause V, Section I, Article II) further dilutes the question of who is eligible to run for President. He has requested the Supreme Court as the Constitutional authority to resolve this issue by finally defining the “idiom”.
When he was asked why he thought it was important to publicly release the current filings, he explained that it was an issue of both national security and for his own protection. “The public needs to know.”
This “Response” is a must read for all those who follow or are engaged in politics in the US.

Union Ranks Declining Dramatically Since Obama Took Office

My guess is that lots of Americans do not like their union dues used to help elect a limp wristed patriot with
a socialist agenda..



The effort by the Wisconsin legislature to curb union power comes at a time when overall union membership has taken a sharp hit, according to the most recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
In 2010, the BLS said union membership fell by 617,000, to 14.7 million. A decade ago, 16.3 million people were in unions.
Union members now make up 11.9 percent of the workforce. A decade ago, that figure stood at 13.4 percent.
The BLS offers a couple of other interesting tidbits about union members.
  • The occupations with the highest union membership rate included education, training and library jobs.
  • Black workers are more likely to be in unions than white, Asian or Hispanic workers.
  • New York is the state with the highest rate of union membership.

Mustang Memories - time to post this again.


Mustang Memories

by Lea MacDonald

It was noon on a Sunday as I recall, the day a Mustang P-51 was to take to the air. They said it had flown in during the night from some US airport, the pilot had been tired.

I marveled at the size of the plane dwarfing the Pipers and Canucks tied down by her, it was much larger than in the movies. She glistened in the sun like a bulwark of security from days gone by.

The pilot arrived by cab paid the driver then stepped into the flight lounge. He was an older man, his wavy hair was grey and tossed . . . looked like it might have been combed, . . . say, around the turn of the century. His bomber jacket was checked, creased, and worn, it smelled old and genuine. Old Glory was prominently sewn to its shoulders. He projected a quiet air of proficiency and pride devoid of arrogance. He filed a quick flight plan to Montreal (Expo-67, Air Show) then walked across the tarmac.

After taking several minutes to perform his walk-around check, the pilot returned to the flight lounge to ask if anyone would be available to stand by with fire extinguishers while he "flashed the old bird up . . . just to be safe." Though only 12 at the time, I was allowed to stand by with an extinguisher after brief instruction on its use -- "If you see a fire point then pull this lever!" I later became a firefighter, but that's another story.

The air around the exhaust manifolds shimmered like a mirror from fuel fumes as the huge prop started to rotate. One manifold, then another, and yet another barked -- I stepped back with the others. In moments the Packard-built Merlin engine came to life with a thunderous roar. Blue flames knifed from her manifolds. I looked at the others' faces, there was no concern. I lowered the bell of my extinguisher. One of the guys signaled to walk back to the lounge. We did.

Several minutes later we could hear the pilot doing his pre-flight run-up. He'd taxied to the end of runway 19, out of sight. All went quiet for several seconds, we raced from the lounge to the second story deck to see if we could catch a glimpse of the P-51 as she started down the runway. We could not. There we stood, eyes fixed to a spot half way down 19. Then a roar ripped across the field, much louder than before, like a furious hell-spawn set loose---something mighty this way was coming.

"Listen to that thing!" Said the controller. In seconds the Mustang burst into our line of sight. Its tail was already off and it was moving faster than anything I'd ever seen by that point on 19. Two thirds the way down 19 the Mustang was airborne with her gear going up. The prop tips were supersonic; we clasped our ears as the Mustang climbed hellish fast into the circuit to be eaten up by the dog-day haze.

We stood for a few moments in stunned silence trying to digest what we'd just seen. The radio controller rushed by me to the radio. "Kingston radio calling Mustang?" He looked back to us as he waited for an acknowledgment. The radio crackled, "Kingston radio, go ahead." "Roger Mustang. Kingston radio would like to advise the circuit is clear for a low level pass." I stood in shock because the controller had, more or less, just asked the pilot to return for an impromptu air show!

The controller looked at us. "What?" He asked. "I can't let that guy go without asking . . . I couldn't forgive myself!" The radio crackled once again, "Kingston radio, do I have permission for a low level pass, east to west, across the field?" "Roger Mustang, the circuit is clear for an east to west pass." "Roger, Kingston radio, we're coming out of 3000 feet, stand by." We rushed back onto the second-story deck, eyes fixed toward the eastern haze.

The sound was subtle at first, a high-pitched whine, a muffled screech, a distant scream. Moments later the P-51 burst through the haze . . . her airframe straining against positive Gs and gravity, wing tips spilling contrails of condensed air, prop-tips again supersonic, as the burnished bird blasted across the eastern margin of the field shredding and tearing the air.

At about 400 Mph and 150 yards from where we stood she passed with an old American pilot saluting . . . imagine . . . a salute. I felt like laughing, I felt like crying, she glistened, she screamed, the building shook, my heart pounded . . . then the old pilot pulled her up . . . and rolled, and rolled, and rolled; out of sight into the broken clouds, and indelibly into my memory.

I've never wanted to be an American more than on that day. It was a time when many nations in the world looked to America as their big brother, a steady and even-handed beacon of security who navigated difficult political water with grace and style; not unlike the pilot who'd just flown into my memory. He was proud, not arrogant, humble, not a braggart, old and honest, projecting an aura of America at its best. That America will return one day, I know it will.

Until that time, I'll just send off a story; call it a reciprocal salute, to the old American pilot who wove a memory for a young Canadian that has stayed a lifetime.

High Flight


John Gillespie Magee Jr.


Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth


And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings.


Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth


Of sun-split clouds -- and done a hundred things


You have not dreamed of . . wheeled and soared and swung


High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,


I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung


My eager craft through footless halls of air


Up, up the long, delirious burning blue


I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace


Where never lark, or even eagle flew.


And, while silent, lifting mind I've trod


The high untresspassed sanctity of space,


Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.



The poem High Flight was written by a young fighter pilot during World War II. Pilot Officer John Gillespie Magee Jr., was an American citizen who was born of missionary parents in Shanghai and educated in Britain's famed Rugby School. He went to the United Stated in 1939, and at the age of 18, won a scholarship to Yale. Like other Americans of the time who wished to aid in the cause of freedom, he decided to enlist in the services of a nation actively engaged in war. Magee enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in September 1940. He served overseas with an RCAF Spitfire Squadron until his death on active service in December, 1941.


His poem, composed in September 1941, was scribbled on the back of a letter which he mailed to his mother in Washington. Pilot Officer Magee was killed a few months later when his Spitfire plane collided with a bomber-pilot trainer on approach to the airport over Lincolnshire, England. He was 19 years old.

Civility in Politics


Hate-A-Rama: The Vulgar, Sexist, Racist, Homophobic Rage of the Left
Barack Obama's new era of civility was over before it began. You wouldn't know it from reading The New York Times, watching Katie Couric or listening to the Democratic manners police. But America has been overrun by foul-mouthed, fist-clenching wildebeests.
       
Yes, the tea party movement is responsible -- for sending these liberal goons into an insane rage, that is. After enduring two years of false smears as sexist, racist, homophobic barbarians, it is grassroots conservatives and taxpayer advocates who have been ceaselessly subjected to rhetorical projectile vomit. It is Obama's rank-and-file "community organizers" on the streets fomenting the hate against their political enemies. Not the other way around.
       
The trendy new epithet among Big Labor organizers who've been camping out at the Madison, Wis., Capitol building for more than a week to block GOP Gov. Scott Walker's budget reform bill: "Koch whore." Classy, huh? It's a reference to the reviled Koch brothers, David and Charles, who have used their energy-industry wealth to support limited-government activism. A left-wing agitator based in Buffalo who impersonated Koch in a prank phone call this week used the slur to headline his "gonzo journalism" report. (If a right-leaning activist had perpetrated such a stunt, he'd be labeled a radical, stalking fraudster. But that's par for the media's double-standards course.)
  
The 20-minute phone call undermined the grand Koch conspiracy by exposing that Walker didn't know Koch at all. No matter. "Koch whore" is the new "Halliburton whore." The Captains of Civility are sticking to it. And the sanctimonious "No Labels" crowd is missing in action -- just like Wisconsin's Fleebagger Democrats.
       
Sexual vulgarity is a common theme in the left's self-styled "solidarity" movement. Among the Madison pro-union signs the national media chose not to show you: "Buttholes for Billionaires" (complete with a photo of Walker's head placed in the middle of a graphic photo of someone's posterior) and "If teabaggers are as hot as their Fox News anchors, then I'm here for the gang bang!!!"
       
Last month, GOP Lieutenant Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch was subjected to similar misogyny for her outreach efforts to private businesses. Liberal WTDY radio host John "Sly" Sylvester accused her of performing "fellatio on all the talk-show hosts in Milwaukee" and sneered that she had "pulled a train" (a crude phrase for group sex).
       
At an AFSCME rally in Providence, R.I., on Tuesday, an unhinged pro-union supporter picked an unprovoked fight with a citizen journalist taping the event for public access TV. His eyes bulging, the brawler yelled: "I'll f**k you in the a**, you faggot!" After several unsuccessful minutes of trying to calm their furious ally down, the solidarity mob finally started chanting, "Hey, hey, ho, ho, union-busting's got to go" to drown out his intimidating vow to follow the cameraman outside the building. Criminal charges are now pending against him. None of the local media who covered the event thought to mention the disruption in their coverage.
       
In Columbus, Ohio, supporters of GOP Gov. John Kasich's fiscal reforms were confronted with a fulminating union demonstrator who railed: "The tea party is a bunch of d**k-sucking corporate butt-lickers who want to crush the working people of this country."
       
In Denver, Colo., Leland Robinson, a gay black tea party activist and entrepreneur who criticized teachers unions at a Capitol rally, was told by white labor supporters to "get behind that fence where you belong." They called the 52-year-old limousine driver "son" and subjected him to this ugly, racially charged taunt: "Do you have any children? That you claim?"
       
Tea party favorite and former Godfather's Pizza President Herman Cain is another outspoken black conservative businessman who has earned the civility mob's lash. Two weeks ago, a cowardly liberal writer derided Cain as a "monkey in the window," a "garbage pail kid" and a "minstrel" who performs for his "masters." Monkey. Parrot. Puppet. Lawn jockey. Uncle Tom. Aunt Thomasina. Oreo. Coconut. Banana. We minority conservatives have heard it all.
       
In Washington, D.C., a multi-union protest at the offices of conservative activist group FreedomWorks resulted in one young female employee, Tabitha Hale, getting smacked with a sign by a barbarian wearing a Communications Workers of America T-shirt -- and another FreedomWorks employee getting yelled at as a "bad Jew" for opposing public union monopolies and reckless spending.
       
In the wake of the Tucson massacre, Obama urged the nation "to do everything we can to make sure this country lives up to our children's expectations." He pushed for "a more civil and honest public discourse."
       
As Big Labor-backing MoveOn.org (the same outfit that smeared Gen. David Petraeus as a traitor) prepares to march on all 50 state Capitols this weekend, where's the Civility Chief now? AWOL.

“Please hurt me”: The Liberal Masochist syndrome. - and The Pathology of Some Liberals.

“Please hurt me”: The Liberal Masochist syndrome.


Many conservatives for some time have made the argument that liberals are mentally ill.  They are.  The problem is they want us to suffer the results of their mental illness as well.

The current unrest in the Middle East is a perfect example of the instability of the left. 

We are depending on foreign governments for our oil.  We import over two-thirds of our oil.  Not only are we dependent on foreign countries, but these are hostile regimes.  It is not as though they are friendly to the United States and we are having an amicable exchange of commerce.  These are countries that would like nothing better than to reduce the United States down to an economic non-power.

Today, oil prices rose 9% based on the unrest in Libya.   Colonel Qaddafi says he will burn Libya’s oil resources if the opposition does not give up.  That is not going to help the energy market and you can expect oil to go up and the stock market to go down because of this.

What is Obama regime’s reaction to this?

As dependent as this country is on foreign oil, the sane rational man would think the logical thing to do is stop being so dependent. America has vast resources of oil, coal, gas and other fuels.  What could America do?

For starters, America could start drilling.  America could start building more oil refineries.   This makes sense.  Even at this late date, if we start, we could at least mitigate some of the damage a foreign oil cutoff would cause.  We could force the price of oil down because of increased supplies.  We could help our economy grow by reducing the price of oil.

What does the Obama regime want to do?  Just the opposite.  Obama and his lunatic Secretary of the Interior have thrown up every possible roadblock to new energy development in this country.  Drilling on Federal lands?  Forget it.  New coal plants?  No, Obama has promised to put those out of business.  Off shore drilling?  The Department of the Interior has now twice been held in contempt of court by a federal judge for simply refusing to allow drilling.   While oil workers lose their jobs, the off shore drills are being moved to places like the coast of Brazil, where the United States has back loans to allow Brazil to develop its energy resources.

Liberals want us to suffer.  Liberals want America to be taken down a notch.  Liberals believe America and its free market system is evil.  Liberals believe that America did not achieve wealth through hard work and innovation.  They believe America oppressed the world and stole its wealth.  So America must be punished. 

It is not simply with energy that liberals want to see America punished.  They hate the military and want to see the military gutted as well. 

Obama has done everything, including signing a treaty, to make it impossible for America to have missile defense.    Let’s think about this one for a second.  Stopping a ballistic missile before its warhead can hit our territory sounds like a pretty good idea.  When you have nuts like Kim Jong “Mentally” Il, who have not only ballistic missiles, but nuclear weapons as well, this idea sounds really good.   You have Iran developing both ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons too.  Iran’s leaders believe there must be world chaos and then the Islamic Mahdi, the equivalent of the second coming, will appear.    That missile defense sounds even better now.

Except, of course, to a liberal.

Liberals seem to love the idea of us being hurt and punished.  I have an idea to hurt and punish liberals.  Let’s kick them out of government.  Let’s make it where liberals are never in a position of power in this government again.  Let’s make sure liberals can never again damage this country the way they have since 2007.

Now, that’s what I call punishment!

*********************************
The Pathology of Some Liberals.

There is much discussion by political sages of the Right about the roots of liberalism being entwined with human weakness and pathology. 
Some of the issues being raised are:
1.   Guilt and self-loathing are woven into liberal philosophy and policy
2.   Dependant personality types are drawn to liberalism
3.   Marginalized groups and dysfunctional individuals are drawn to liberalism
4.   Histrionic personality types are drawn to liberalism
5.   Liberal values discourage people from acting in their own self interest
6.   Liberals think of them selves as intellectually and ethically superior to conservatives

These are just a few of the indicators of “character disorders” seen in liberal thinking, feeling, and behaving.  It is fascinating to me to look at “collective personality traits” and then diagnose them as if they were individuals.  Buy yourself a DSM-IV (Diagnostic Service Manual) and have some fun.  Another excellent book on pathological personality traits is “New Personality Self-Portrait” by John Oldham, M.D. who wrote the Personality Disorder section of the DSM-IV.

Personality disorders are different from other mental health problems.  Personality disorders are extreme examples of traits we all have.  For instance, if I carefully planned every detail of a trip I was taking and packed my suitcase in an orderly and through manner; I would just be a conscientious person.  If I took so much time planning and packing that I missed my plane, I would be diagnosed as having obsessive/compulsive disorder.

Those drawn to definable political philosophies might also exhibit personality traits that become so extreme they could be called pathologies
In general the Liberals would represent the “weak” disorders.  Liberals may be dependant, self-defeating, avoidant or passive-aggressive. 

For those of you who care to further familiarize yourself with the “weak” disorders that characterize liberal pathologies, here are the names and a link for more information:

Dependent Personality Disorder – http://www.mentalhealth.com/dis1/p21-pe09.html


Avoidant Personality Disorder - http://www.mentalhealth.com/dis1/p21-pe08.html

Passive Aggressive Personality Disorder - http://www.ptypes.com/passive-aggpd.html

One of the significant indicators of pathology of personality is an inability to act in one’s own self interests.  This also has to do with self loathing.  You can see this manifested in liberal “hate.”  A good example is the left’s attitude toward President Bush.  It seems to me that if one hates with that much venom one must have self hatred first.  I may not be fond of the likes of Michael Moore or John Kerry, but I sure can't be bothered working up the energy to hate them like liberals hate “W.”

Many liberals seem to be unable to act in a clear path of self-interest, even the interest of their own country.  Guilt contains some of the main elements of the "liberal" self loathing. I have had many clients raised in an atmosphere heavy on guilt; they had tremendous amounts of fear (fear of failing, fear of being found wanting, etc.) always a sort of low-level, non-specific sense of guilt. These are the perfect specimens to become card-carrying "liberals."  I should feel guilty because there are others in need, I should feel guilty because my country is so much more prosperous than anyone else's, I should feel guilty because my army can beat up their army, etc. (The CIA sucks, we are stupid, we are evil, we are greedy.) 

The liberals are a good example of insular thinking.  They reinforce each other constantly, and instantly crush any idea competing with their “party line.”  All “movements” do this, including the extreme right wing.  This is another symptom of the “True Believers” pathology.  This is one of the things that make political groups so dangerous.  “All movements go too far.” Bertrand Russell.  There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.

Household share of federal debt jumps $29,660 under Obama “stimulus”FROM WIRE REPORTS

Household share of federal debt jumps $29,660 under Obama “stimulus”

2011-02-21 08:45:43
hillsboro-barack-presiden
WASHINGTON • Since President Barack Obama signed his economic “stimulus’ law two years ago, the federal government has borrowed an additional $29,660 per household, according to a published report.
The total national debt is now $125,475.18 per household, according to CNSNews.com.
When Obama signed the $787-billion law on Feb. 17, 2009, the national debt was $10.79 trillion, according the Bureau of the Public Debt. Two years later, the national debt stands at $14.13 trillion — an increase of $3.34 trillion.
Out of every $100 in federal taxes, $6 goes to interest on the debt, according to Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands. At the rate we are spending and borrowing, by 2018 that number could jump to $15 out of every $100, according to figures posted on Lewis’ website.
The current total national debt of $14.13 trillion.

Are Wisconsin Teachers Underpaid - Union Propaganda


Average MPS Teacher Compensation Tops $100k/year


[Milwaukee, Wisconsin] MacIver News Service – For the first time in history, the average annual compensation for a teacher in the Milwaukee Public School system will exceed $100,000.

That staggering figure was revealed at a meeting of the MPS School Board.

The average salary for an MPS teacher is $56,500. When fringe benefits are factored in, the annual compensation will be $100,005 in 2011.

The Eligibility Issue by Judson Phillips

The left likes to call it the “birther” issue.   The term birther is used as a derisive term by the left, much as truther is.   Of course the difference is truthers beliefs are based on a paranoid ideology, where as the birther issue is based on facts.

I prefer to call it the eligibility issue, not the birther issue.  Whether you agree or not, the people who are pushing the eligibility issue are on our side.  It is certainly counter-productive to deride them like liberals do.

Recently a whole stream of Republicans have come out, at the prompting of the drive by media, to reassure us that Obama is a citizen and oh, yes, he is a Christian too. 

Last Sunday, at the prodding of David Gregory on Meet the Press, or as Rush likes to call it, Meet the depressed, Boehner said, the State of Hawaii had said he was born there, that was good enough for him. 

Karl Rove, not a friend of the Tea Party, pushed the RINO line that Obama is a citizen and Sarah Palin, at a meeting in Long Island, a few days ago, also denounced the eligibility issue.   Palin ended her remarks on the subject by saying, “let’s stick with what really matters.”

This issue does matter.

There are three variations on the eligibility issue.  Two are based on undisputed facts.  The third is in dispute.

The most commonly reported of the eligibility challenges is the claim that Obama was actually born in Kenya, not Hawaii.   I believe, based on the available evidence, that it is more likely than not, Obama was actually born in Hawaii.   Obama has spent a lot of time and (other people’s) money, keeping his original birth certificate out of sight. 

Why?

Jack Cashill is one of my favorite writers and he has a theory which I think makes sense, that Obama was in fact born in Hawaii, but there is something else on his birth certificate that would destroy the myth of Barack Obama.  (See his website, Cashill.com).   In the law, there is a presumption that if a party has exclusive access to a piece of evidence and will not release it, the evidence must be adverse to their position.

The second eligibility issue is the claim that because Barack Obama’s father was a Kenyan, a British subject at the time of Obama’s birth, he is not a natural born citizen.

The third is the argument that because Barack Obama was adopted as a child by an Indonesian and moved to Indonesia, he is not an American citizen.   Under the law at that time, if an American child was adopted by a citizen of another country and moved to that country, he lost his citizenship.   He could regain his citizenship by applying at an American Embassy when he was 18, but would then be treated as a naturalized citizen and thus ineligible to be President. 

What is stunning about all of this is the mainstream Republican reaction to the eligibility issues. 

The RINOs turn their noses up at the people who want the answers, which, incidentally is 60% of Republican voters.  They turn their noses up at the Tea Party movement.  Yet, they do not take a moment to consider why this is important.

If Barack Obama is proved to be ineligible to be President, everything he has done is wiped out.  Obamacare is gone.  The START treaty is gone.  The liberal lunatics Obama has appointed to the Federal Judiciary, including the two he has put on the Supreme Court are gone.

Much of the damage Obama has done to this country can be undone.  Unfortunately, the Country Club Republicans remain clueless. In their minds, the Democrats are simply the lower class versions of themselves.  They do not understand that if the party of treason has its way, America will be forever changed and ultimately destroyed.

The Courts have so far brushed aside all of the eligibility claims.  None have been addressed on the merits under the claim that Americans lack standing to challenge the issue.   Recently, the Supreme Court has given some indication it may consider one of the issues.  We can only hope.

What are the chances of success?  Who knows?

Why do football teams run the flea flicker play?   It does not work all of the time, but when it does, the results are spectacular.  Why should conservatives all hope this works out?  Because this wipes out almost everything the Obama regime has done.  We get a do over.

You would think, even the RINOs who want to denigrate the eligibility issue could figure this one out.
*********************
ALSO SEE: Why the Barack Obama Birth Certificate Issue Is Legitimate

Muslims exempt from paying for OBAMACARE BUT STILL GET BENEFITS

Those that adhere to Islam won’t have to pay health insurance but will still be entitled to benefits because Islam has “a tradition of barring conventional insurance products because they ‘involve an element of uncertainty, gambling and the charging of interest, which is prohibited by the Koran.’”

Of course, if you are white and Christian, Jewish, or if just make too much money for the Obamists, then you are going to be the ones who will pay the Muslim bill for healthcare.

Jerome Corsi; Lawsuit Regarding Obama's Social Security Number Reserved For Connecticut Applicants

Looming Government Shutdown Anarchy?

Looming Government Shutdown Anarchy

 By Jim Simpson
As the battle of the budget wages on, the March 4th D-Day moves inexorably closer, and with the Continuing Resolution passed in the House of Representatives early this morning, including two amendments by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) to defund Obamacare, the media is increasingly raising the specter of a possible government shutdown. What every Republican, every patriot, every person conceivably affected needs to understand is how this will impact average Americans.

Will airports shut down because air traffic controllers have gone on leave? Will those mean Republicans throw granny out in the street when Social Security stops sending payments? Will everyone who receives checks in the mail see their income dry up because the Post Office shuts down?

Will welfare mothers have to grill rats on a spit to feed their children?

The Democrats will tell you that and more. A Google search of “government shutdown” brings up pages describing dire consequences. But if you follow the links you will see that this is more a reflection of leftist web domination than anything else.

The greatest consequence of a government shutdown will be the Democrat-generated media hysteria we will have to put up with unless/until they get their way. They will demagogue at every opportunity, describing fantastic scenes of nationwide anarchy. They will do what they always do, about the only thing they do well, and in fact have already begun doing:

They will lie.

President Obama almost immediately threatened that Social Security checks would stop coming.

He lied.

Think Progress, the archetypical radical left propaganda rag, interviewed freshman Republican Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA), who pooh poohed worries about a government shutdown. They didn’t ask him to qualify, but later attempted to discredit his message:
Kelly’s assertions are simply not true. One need look no further than the federal government shutdown of 1995 for proof. During the nearly four-week shutdown, Social Security checks were not mailed and Medicare/Medicaid reimbursements were disrupted.
They lie.
The whole article is a carefully constructed deception—an echo chamber for Democrat demagoguery. Follow the links. They’re hoping you won’t.

The first link goes to a Wikipedia entry that describes the 1995 shutdown. No mention of social security checks. The second goes to an article at Talking Points Memo, the hard left smear site. It simply quotes more Democrats, like Clinton Treasury Secretary Robert Reich and Donna Shalala, then HHS Secretary. She said, “It was a mess, frankly, and devastating to the civil service… It seems to me it’s un-American…”

Devastating to the civil service…

I find that telling. Her biggest concern is the impact on… government. And what a joke. We are talking about two shutdowns here, one of five days and another of three weeks—merely a long vacation for most government bureaucrats.

Un-American? Well, she should know.

According to TPM, Shalala provided a list of payments that would stop: “Social Security checks, Medicare reimbursements...welfare checks to the state, Medicaid checks to the state.”

She lied.

Think Progress even absurdly cites a report by the Center for American Progress. The Center is run by far, far left, former Clinton Chief of Staff John Podesta, and described by former Weather Underground Obama supporter Mark Rudd as “Obama’s government in waiting.” Yet another echo chamber.

The Think Progress article then cites some statistics from a 2004 Congressional Research Service report on government shutdowns, implying that the CRS concurred regarding all these ill effects of the shutdown.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Congressional Research Service is one of the few remaining organizations within the U.S. government that produces serious, unbiased analysis. Part of the Library of Congress, it is the go to organization when members of Congress want the unvarnished truth. By citing CRS, Think Progress attempts to impute integrity to their fraudulent propaganda. Once again, they are hoping you don’t look up the actual report, which they did not link to.

Think Progress lied.

The CRS report is explicit regarding those government services that will not be disrupted. Cut and pasted directly from the report:
Essential Services and Personnel

A 1980 Office of Management and Budget (OMB) memorandum defines “essential”
government services and “essential” employees as those:
  1. providing for the national security, including the conduct of foreign relations essential to the national security or the safety of life and property;
  1. providing for benefit payments and the performance of contract obligations under no-year or multi-year or other funds remaining available for those purposes;
  1. conducting essential activities to the extent that they protect life and property, including:
  • medical care of inpatients and emergency outpatient care;
  • activities essential to ensure continued public health and safety, including safe use of food, drugs, and hazardous materials;
  • continuance of air traffic control and other transportation safety functions and the protection of transport property;
  • border and coastal protection and surveillance;
  • protection of federal lands, buildings, waterways, equipment and other property owned by the United States;
  • care of prisoners and other persons in the custody of the United States;
  • law enforcement and criminal investigations;
  • emergency and disaster assistance;
  • activities that ensure production of power and maintenance of the power distribution system;
  • activities essential to the preservation of the essential elements of the money and banking system of the United States, including borrowing and tax collection activities of the Treasury; and
  • activities necessary to maintain protection of research property.
Let me be absolutely clear here. There will be no disruption in Social Security, welfare, civil service retirement, or any other kind of open-ended mandatory program payments. The mail will not stop because the Post Office is largely self-funding (with you know, those stamps you buy to mail things with). Air traffic controllers will not go on furlough, jets will keep flying, the Border Patrol will keep on attempting to secure the border that Janet Napolitano wants unsecured, and our military will stay in the fight, however poorly and treasonously led by the current Commander-in-Chief.

Will there be adverse effects? Absolutely. We are talking about a government shutdown. But they are not the dire consequences Democrats are hyping. The only people who will really notice the government shutdown are government workers themselves, and most importantly, Congressional Democrats.

Boo hoo!

Notice that the CRS Report link is directly from the Democrats’ House Rules Committee website. So the Democrats know all this, but they blatantly lie about it. They can get away with it though, because the media relentlessly echoes their message, and rarely if ever corrects them.

The Republicans’ job from here on in is to point out the facts. Every Republican in Congress should be pounding out this message. In 1995, they utterly failed at this, when Newt Gingrich reportedly made it all about him, suggesting he threatened a shutdown because Bill Clinton dissed him on Air Force One. Forget Newt for President.

Republicans also must pound the airwaves with reminders that a government shutdown would be due entirely to Democrat intransigence. Republicans are merely trying to keep their pledge to the American people, who in November of 2010 sent an unmistakable message to the Democrats: knock it off!

One possibility remains. Given his penchant for defying law and the Constitution through regulatory subterfuge, President Obama could possibly change the ground rules and crank up the pressure by actually ordering the Social Security Administration to stop sending checks. Once again, it will be incumbent on Republicans to explain that Democrats are choosing to do this.

This is a critical juncture in our Nation’s history. Republicans must demonstrate some intestinal fortitude for a change. A few days ago, I posted an article demanding that Speaker Boehner put up or shut up by allowing amendments to the Continuing Resolution that would defund Obamacare. Given that the CR passed the House with such provisions, it appears he decided to put up.

Speaker Boehner and House Republicans, you have the voters on your side, you have the facts on your side, and never in our history has it been more important for you to take a principled stand. Do not back down in the face of the Democrats’ government shutdown threats. We don’t want that, but if Democrats insist on continuing to trash our country, I say, “bring it on!”
 

Quote of the day - Obama's birth certificate

I don't know any thinking, rational person who questions the existence of Obama's birth certificate. Of course he's got one. The question is not whether he has one. The question is what it says about where he was born and who his parents were. That question remains an open debate because the American people and all controlling legal authorities have been systematically denied a peek at any document that might offer an answer.

we know more about the first few years of George Washington‘s life than we do about Barack Obama‘s

Now on bookshelves: “Deconstructing Obama: The Life, Loves and Letters of America’s First Postmodern President” by Jack Cashill, published by Simon & Shuster. The new book uncovers “major discrepancies in the accepted narrative” of President Obama‘s life, particularly his earliest years. Mr. Cashill says the news media is indifferent to such information. He’s also convinced that former University of Illinois professor Bill Ayers — who co-founded the radical Weather Underground in 1969 — helped craft “Dreams From My Father,” the president’s much-acclaimed memoir.

“When I started this inquiry, I was less interested in President Obama‘s birth certificate than I was in his SAT scores. As I got in deeper, I could see that we know more about the first few years of George Washington‘s life than we do about Barack Obama‘s,” Mr. Cashill tells Inside the Beltway. “This was the most comprehensive media failure in American history.”

Barack Obama-President or Pretender ?

Barack Obama-President or Pretender ?

President Obama
President Obama
Neil Abercrombie, Dem.Governor of Hawaii & long-time friend of Obama family members, said he would obtain Obama's original Hawaiian Dept.of Health Birth Certificate (Certificate of Live Birth) to settle the Presidential issue for good. Two weeks later,he now says that no Birth Certificate was found in Hawaii's records, only a "written notation" mentioning Obama's birth. Shades of the 1940's "Kilroy was here" fad; a "written signature put on buildings,bridges,trains,etc.to satirically imply a mystical figure had been there! Hawaii's fruitless search did serve one useful purpose, making a lie of Obama's previous statements that the "Certification of Live Birth(COLB) which he posted on the Daily Kos website was a "true copy" of the Health Dept. Birth Certificate, now apparently non-existent.
A 1961 Hawaiian "Certificate of Live Birth had approx.42 points of required info while Obama's COLB had about 13, glaringly lacking a birth hospital name, birth certificate number, doctor's name, witnesses names,etc. I cannot over-emphasize the significance of the next sentence.Obama, a Constitutional teacher, clearly knew beforehand that his limited COLB was either fraudulent or only able to confirm "naturalized citizenship" status and that Our Constitution (Article 2, Sec.1) limited Presidential eligibility to natural-born Americans, hence the need of a "Certificate of Live Birth". If, as Obama said, his COLB was a copy of the Hawaiian Birth Certificate both documents would have been COLB's and both thereby unacceptable for eligibility purposes. Also, the Hawaiian Director of Health, Dr.Chiyome Fukino (ret.) declared years before: "I have personally seen & verified that the Hawaii State Dept.of Health has (then Senator) Obama's original birth certificate on record, in accordance with State policies & procedures." What "policy or procedure" enables one to see and verify a document which appears to have never existed? In fairness, when Obama recently asked: "Should I paste my birth certificate on my forehead?" I sympathized with him since he already had produced four different versions of it ("if at first you don't succeed, try,try again.") and could not possibly fit all four on his forehead.
                                                                     
THE PLOT THICKENS
I previously wrote eight letters on this issue, sending them to thousands. In addition, all mentioned in these letters received copies but none challenged or even acknowledged my words. I am no scholar but after eighteen years of writing I have found that many deny truth by their silence. The Media silence is a notable shame. With few exceptions they treat Obama's birth certificate issue as a non-issue. They ridicule the now over 50 percent questioning his legitimacy in nationwide polls, using "birthers" as a dismissive term to ridicule faithful Constitutional Defenders. They call challengeers "fringe groups,radicals, racial bigots (are you listening Alan Keyes?), or treasonable,misguided people. For about twenty-five dollars Obama might have put this issue to rest by producing a "Certificate of Live Birth" for verification of authenticity, but chose to spend millions in legal fees (not counting Court costs) to prevent such disclosure and now Hawaii cannot find any legitimate record of his birth. Suggestion: Try the name Sortoro or maybe Kenya could help if "dual citizenship" is mentioned.
Bill O'Reilly of Fox News, who claims to be "fair and balanced" was anything but when speaking on this issue. Using Megan Kelly as a foil he denigrated anyone questing Obama's eligibility, using such phrases as "If Hawaiian newspapers publish a birth announcement it must be true."! An unbelieveable false statement which doesn't even address the distinction between a "naturalized" and "natural-born" birth. Didn't he know anyone could prepare a "Certification of Live Birth"(COLB) and use it to advise Newspapers of a "birth", or that a COLB can never be used to confirm a "Natural-born" citizenship status?. Ignorance sometimes is excusable but parading it as informed intelligence is not. O'Reilly also opined that Army Lt.Col.Terrence Lakin, a Bronze Star recipient of 18 years military service, including Afghanistan, who now sits in a prison for standing up for The Constitution, was politically motivated. I see....a dishonorable discharge, loss of salary, pension, all benefits and now serving six months in Leavenworth Prison. What a great resume` for someone seeking later political office! When O'Reilly ends his programs with "we're looking out for you" I wonder if Lt.Col. Lakin sometime thinks "I wish that were true." O'Reilly is a tall man but is he tall enough to stand up for a man he wrongly put down? Incidentally, my thanks go to those in the media who have faithfully reported this issue, particularly World New Daily, the many radio and Internet organizations and all the individuals using these outlets for adding their voices to the rising crescendo demanding truth and transparancy be served.
TRUTH AND JUSTICE-WAYSIDE DISCARDS ?
Copies of my eight above-mentioned letters were sent to all nine members of the Supreme Court. Not one responded or even acknowledged them (9x8=72 copies)Was it something I said? I can only pray that they draw from truths therein to honestly serve Justice. Sadly,however, recent lawsuits challenging Obama's eligibility (Col.Gregory Hollister-Air Force-ret., and Commander Charles Kerchner (Navy-ret.) were dismissed by the Court without comment, apparently ignoring any challenges to Obama's legitimacy by either plaintiff, both of whom had requested that Justices Sotomayor and Kegan recuse themselves from the Court deliberations since both were nominated to the Court by Obama and Justice Kegan formerly was the Solicitor General whose name appeared on Justice Dept.documents concerning Obama's eligibility. Talk about having vested interest in a Court decision! If neither recused themselves nor did the Court, was Justice blind? No....it just shut its eyes. I still have faith in a Supreme Court but it's not located on Earth.

"THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO DISCLOSE THE TRUTH ARE THOSE WITH SOMETHING TO HIDE."

Those words were uttered by Obama and appeared in Newsday newspaper on L.I,,New York Aug.22,2010. Globe Magazine twice offered $100,000 to the United Negro College Fund if Obama disclosed the Hawaiian Birth Certificate to the Public. Both offers were ignored...something to hide?  All other requests for disclosure of that document and school records,etc. were also denied....something more to hide? He who kept promising "transparency" to crowds now dreaded the consequences of keeping his promises so he simply removed all his records from the public eye, becoming the man who never was & taking the art of secrecy down to a new low. How can he possibly run for re-election in 2012 when the entire Country will be aware that his "Certification of Live Birth will still not be accepted as proof of "Natural-born" citizenship? He fooled the Nation once-never again!
In a previous letter I asked:"What Price The Presidency"? Obama has answered that question by the terrible treatment inflicted on Lt.Col.Lakin, as defined herein. For eighteen years Lt.Col.Lakin faithfully served the Army. He advanced to leading flight surgeon, charged with caring for Chief of Staff Casey's pilots and air crews. Last year, when serious doubt intensified nationwide regarding Obama's eligibility, the Colonel wrote to his Superiors of his concerns. After one year with no response he then wrote twice directly to Obama. Only after no responses (Obama's trademark) did the Colonel refuse an order to return to Afghanistan and was then court-martialed & sentenced to prison. At his trial the presiding judge warned him not to ask for any Obama documents(BC,etc) for they might prove "embarrassing to the President." Was this a trial or a lynching? Fast forward to Christmas 2010 and picture a contrast in travel arrangements which took place. Obama was flown to Oahu for a vacation while Lt.Col.Lakin was taken(under guard) to Leavenworth,Kansas Federal Prison for incarceration. Two similar-sounding words but separated by a great chasm!. One man deliberately sacrificed another man's freedom, or was it a Country's,
to continue an unparalleled deception. America must correct this injustice. We must raise our voices for Truth and Vindication of Lt.Col.Lakin. He carried the banner as far as he could. Now it's in our hands.
                                                                                                                                     
Special Note: due to time and health restraints I have never used my e-mails to recommend financial support for any cause, but now make an exemption. I once told Lt.Col.Lakin, who had thanked me for my assistance, that I and others simply pass ammunition up to him on the frontline. Well, his frontline is now his home and family. Below, you will note a website set  up to help save his family from financial ruin because the man who once offered(with no pre-conditions) to meet with the Iranian President who had threatened to destroy our Country, had no time to respond to two letters from a "natural-born" American citizen and defender of our Country. Please help Lt.Col.Lakin in whatever manner you can.

Birth Certificate Opinion from a Democrat who Voted for Obama

Well done, re "birthers". I guess then, as a Dem that voted for BHO, that my wanting to see a valid birth document makes me a "proofer", since I don't know either way.

   Do you? If you have a valid birth document, please send me a copy so I can blast it to my national lists.
   In 3 years, I have not found one valid birth document in trying to silence "birthers". The only one acknowledged by "BHO" (and Gibbs, saying "WE...put it there" in response to a Information Request by a reporter) is on their website. "Only" problem is that, at the bottom of it, the "STATE OF HAWAII" clearly declares it "INVALID".

   So, without any, there is no "proof" of anything about BHO either way...not even the identities of his parents.

   That doesn't seem appropriate somehow.
Thanks.

Gulag Night - The Real ‘Birther’ Conspiracy Theory

The Real ‘Birther’ Conspiracy Theory

In the course of my inquiries into many of history’s more recent controversies—JFK, Waco, Vince Foster, Oklahoma City, Ron Brown, TWA Flight 800, 9/11, Obama’s birth, the authorship of Obama’s books—I have come to see that when there are actual conspiracies afoot, they fall into two general categories, conspiracies of execution and conspiracies of concealment.
Conspiracies of execution, at least on any kind of scale, are rare in American history. The nature of our national character and the openness of our political culture war against them.
Conspiracies of concealment are another matter. When officials fail in their duties and let, say, a president get shot, a plane get blown out of the sky, or a hijacker fly into a building, their first impulse is to conceal their mistakes. Such is human nature.
To me, a “conspiracy theorist” is one who sees a conspiracy of execution where none could logically exist or who confuses a conspiracy of concealment with one of execution despite ample evidence to the contrary.
Given this understanding, it is the rare “birther” who qualifies as a conspiracy theorist. Few have conjured elaborate, impossible conspiracies on the scale Oliver Stone did in JFK or the French leftist Theirry Meyssan and others did with 9/11.
Most birthers simply want to know where and when their president was born, a not unreasonable aspiration. Few insist that they know the answer. Despite my ample research, I do not know.

All I do know is that the official story—the one Barack Obama trotted out in his memoir and both his convention speeches—is false. In my forthcoming book, Deconstructing Obama, I show in detail why this is so and what the alternatives might be.
If there are conspiracy theorists involved in the birther issue it is those cynical souls—and they are many, left and right–who insist that Obama and his operatives have purposefully dragged the birth certificate in front of the baying hounds of the excitable right like a red herring. In its simplest form, this theory at least sounds plausible.
14 th century philosopher William of Occam had a keen eye for plausibility. We know his approach to problem solving by the label “Occam’s Razor,” an axiom often stated in shorthand as, “The simplest explanation is usually the best.” The original Latin—“Pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate”—adds some nuance. This translates roughly, “One ought not posit multiple variables unnecessarily.”
The cynics’ case weakens the more variables they posit. In December, for instance, Hawaii’s Democrat governor Neil Abercrombie went public with his desire to silence dissenters by proving Obama’s citizenship. When the governor failed to find it, the cynics insisted that he too had been enlisted in Obama’s conspiracy to discredit the birthers.
Andrew Walden made this very case in American Thinker last week. Wrote Walden, “Abercrombie may act like a dopey doofus, but it is just an act.  He has spent a lifetime in politics manipulating conservatives to unwittingly serve his agenda — and he’s proud of it.”
As Walden sees it, Abercrombie likely conspired with Obama to keep this story in the news, all the better to embarrass the right. When Abercrombie pal, celebrity journalist Mike Evans, claimed on air that Abercrombie had told him there was no birth certificate—and then later retracted–Walden and others imagined him in the plot as well.
“The progressives know they can get the birthers to do anything they want,” concluded Waden. “They are having a ball, and they are discrediting Obama’s opponents in the run-up to 2012.”
In other words, Abercrombie’s failure to find the promised records and Evan’s recantation of a story he breathlessly told on more than thirty radio stations were part of a clever and increasingly intricate plot to enhance Obama’s electoral chances in 2012. Never mind that Abercrombie made himself look foolish and Evans lost his credibility in the process. The plot demanded sacrifice.
This, my friends, is conspiracy theorizing at its purest, and it makes little sense for two obvious reasons. First, there is no political advantage in attacking birthers. After two years of “having a ball” with them, the Democrats lost 63 seats in the House this past November.
The second is that Obama does indeed have much to hide. Whether he was born in Hawaii or in Washington State–or wherever–we know that he did not spend the first two years of his life in a happy, little multicultural home in Hawaii as advertised. He ascended to the presidency on a fully fabricated origins story.
The more these alleged conspirators talk about Obama’s origins the more attention they focus on that story. This attention is inspiring state legislatures to demand proof of citizenship before it puts candidates on the ballot. Even if Obama does eventually produce a birth certificate that squares with his origins story, critics can credibly ask why did he not produce it years earlier.
That is, if he can produce a birth certificate that squares with his origins story.

Allen West’s keynote speech for CPAC 2011

Posted on February 13, 2011 by Hal Jordan

Representative Allen West
Representative Allen West R-Fla
Representative Allen West (R-Florida) gave the closing speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on February 12, 2011. Here’s what he had to say.
He introduced an Army Sergeant, a veteran of Iraq, who trains those who guard the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
He talked about the difficult campaigns where Republicans won the House majority while having to contend with unreasonable accusations.
He pointed out that he had been called “The Worst Person in the World” 5 or 6 times (presumably by Keith Olbermann), and then with a little smile he said “And he got fired for it!”
He said “I believe that we are standing on the verge of the dawn of a new America, if we adhere to those fundamental Conservative principles, and those Consitutional ideals.”He quoted Alexis de Toqueville: “While democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.”
The next part of his speech involved what he called the “pillars of conservatism.”
First pillar: Effective and efficient conservative government.
  • He quoted Thomas Jefferson: “Most bad government results from too much government”), which is why next week Congress will cut 100 billion dollars of spending off of the federal budget.
  • Making people more dependent on the government has to end, so hard decisions must be made. “We cannot continue on with the policies of behavior modification through excessive taxation and over burdensome regulation…and that’s why we’re going to be cutting from the EPA.” (wild cheering)
  • If health care is so great, then someone explain to me why over 200 Democrat political groups are going to the President and asking for waivers.” Here was a great quote: “I say this to the President: The good things in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: closing the doughnut hole, making sure that we take care of people with the preexisting conditions, keeping our young kids on our insurance, I can probably fit that in five to ten pages. It’s the other two thousand four hundred ninety pages with eleven new taxes, a hundred fifty nine new government agencies and beauracracies, and sixteen thousand new IRS agents, that the United States of America does not want!” (standing ovation)
  • He mentioned the financial meltdown in 2008 and blamed it (rightfully so) on government interference with the private sector.
  • He talked about reforming the individual tax code, cutting the corporate business tax rate from 35% down to 20%, eliminating capital gains taxes and dividends taxes, capping federal spending at 18-20%, developing a balanced budget amendment, and eliminating “redundant, failed, and duplicitious federal government programs and agencies.”
Second pillar: Peace through vigilance, through resolve, through strength.
  • He mentioned the famous Edmund Burke quote, one of my personal favorites: “All that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”
  • He quoted Sun Tzu: “To know your enemy, and to know yourself, and to know the terrain or the environment, in countless battles, you will always be victorious.”
  • And then he made the most important statement of the night: “Peace begins with courageous leaders who are willing to identify and define our enemy, and their objectives, because political correctness has no place in our national security strategy.” (the crowd screamed and another standing ovation ensued)
  • He said he was appalled that the Fort Hood shooting was treated like workplace violence.
  • He said “A new America, a secure America, means that we can ill afford to have a twenty-first century Sir Neville Chamberlain moment.”
  • He said “And yes, yes I do have a problem with granting American Constitutional rights to terrorists while we attempt to and have imprisoned our own warriors for killing terrorists.” (another standing ovation – there were so many during this speech)
  • Here’s another money quote: “The dawn of a new America means this: Secure our borders and enforce our laws. Recognize the emerging threats on the Korean peninsula. Recognize the threats that are coming out of South and Central America. And confront the radical Islamic non-state, non-uniformed belligerents who transit freely across borders, killing and promoting a seventh century ideology that is anathema to the values of America and to Western civilization.”
  • He said that we must never forget that Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East, and vowed that “I shall never let Israel down.”
Third and most important pillar: Never abandon our values.
  • “We must honor our language and realize that it is the most important, most basic and common bond which makes us an American.”
  • He said we shouldn’t allow multiculturalism to “grow on steroids” and make American culture subservient.
  • He said he doesn’t support late term abortion or abortion as birth control because he doesn’t believe that having a baby is punishment (reference to an Obamateurism).
  • He said “We must hold sacred the privilege of the institution of marriage as a bond between a man and a woman.”
  • He said we had to reclaim our “Judeo-Christian faith heritage.” He quoted John Adams: “We have no government armed with power, capable of contending with human passions, unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
  • He said “This is not about a separation of church and state. It is about making sure that we do not separate faith from the individual. You must never forget that the American motto is In God We Trust.” (standing ovation)
  • His next statement almost got a standing ovation from me: “We welcome the beliefs of others in America, but our coexistence must be based on a simple premise: when tolerance becomes a one-way street, it leads to cultural suicide. And American cultural values shall never be subjugated to any other as long as I have air in my lungs.”
His closing thoughts started with a quote from George Washington: “We are either a united people or we are not. If the former, let us in all matters of general concern act as a nation which has national objects to promote and a national character to support. If we are not, let us no longer act a farce by pretending to it.” He quoted Abraham Lincoln: “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” He discussed how he grew up in the Atlanta area and went into the military, and then ran for political office as a public service to all Americans. He said “This is what Abraham Lincoln said. ‘Be sure you put your feet in the right place. Then stand firm.’ So as you depart here today from this great hall, from this great gathering of conservatives, this is the commission that I send you out with: Stand firm, for this is the dawn of a new America. God bless you all, God bless America, steadfast and loyal. Thank you.”
The speech can be seen in its entirety at The Rightscoop.
NOTE: The video of this speech recorded from C-SPAN was cut off near the end so they could cover a speech by the President. Most of the YouTube videos I saw all came from C-SPAN.
